System specs? Do a clean install of your drivers?

You missed key points, PSU? Have you try to do a clean install of your drivers and update to newest? are you sure you install the game properly? Are you sure graphics are inserted and set up properly?

go to the safe mode, uninstall your driver there, reboot to normal mode, then install the newest WHQL drivers from nVidia and you might also update Motherboard BIOS drivers also. Make sure everything else is fine such as CPU, RAM, PSU etc. Also give me the temperatures, of all your parts.

+1.
Be sure that you have installed WHQL drivers and not Beta.
The latest WHQL drivers are:
Windows7: GeForce 285.62 Driver
WindowsXP: GeForce 285.58 Driver
